Guest rooms and suites feature a collection of custom, made-in-Canada furniture including a floating worktable, custom full-size bar, walnut-framed beds and white oak walls. The warmth of traditional Nova Scotia is reflected in a modern Muir tartan blanket and braided rug. Expansive windows look out to ocean views and the spa-like bathrooms feature rain showers and marble-lined tubs. Each of the rooms and suites showcases an original Nova Scotia landscape painting and there's also an in-house art gallery.
I last visited Halifax in 2009 while on my Great Big Canadian Train Adventure from Halifax west to Vancouver, so I'm long overdue in seeing what's new in the past dozen years. Among the hotel openings in the fall of 2021 is Muir, located on the waterfront in the center of downtown Halifax. Featuring 109 rooms and suites, their website has launched and the hotel is accepting reservations. I'm so there, even if only virtually!
Windward Wellness is Muir's fitness center and for relaxation there is a spa pool, cold plunge pool, salt room, steam room and infrared sauna. Kayaks, paddle boards and bicycles are complimentary, along with access to the Muir yacht and motorboat.
